A multicultural film series
Feeding Young Mind’s film initiative, Voices of Diversity, is a multicultural film series which was created to support and enable creative artists who are marginalised or disadvantaged in the Victorian community to develop their crafts and to become paid professional artists.
VOICES OF DIVERSITY
In alignment with Feeding Young Mind’s Four Pillars of Humanity: diversity, inclusion, freedom and equality, the multicultural films series aim to disseminate, educate, and encourage positive discussions within the wider Australian community, about topics of racial and creed prejudices, gender orientation, freedom, and equality.
Over the years it has become increasingly more important to be able to see themselves represented in film and television. It is a significant aspect of present day living in a modern society. Not only is it a way for us to connect and relate to one another through dramatization, but it also reflects who we are as a society and shows us the potential of who we might be.

“There is a richness to be attained as culturally aware and awakened society with the inclusion of the diverse and ethnic voices of the many than that of the Caucasian few”
– Maya A./Poet
Through these series of short films, Feeding Young Minds will showcase creative artists and their personal stories on how foreign cultures adjust to the Australian lifestyle and shed light on what life is like for an immigrant living and adapting to Australian laws and customs.
The short films will be submitted to various film festivals and screenings around the world, to further educate and propagate about cultural diversity and inclusion.
By sharing stories of their lived experiences, the audience will gain a better insight into their lives and a clearer understanding of their social economic issues thereby promoting inclusion and improve communications with one another with kindness, respect and understanding.
